Our jus­tice sys­tem

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SANA ISHAQUE

“The present ad­min­is­tra­tion of the jus­tice sys­tem suf­fers from many in­fir­mi­ties and in the pres­ence of those it is not easy to do jus­tice,” re­marked Chief Jus­tice of Balochis­tan High Court Mo­ham­mad Noor Meskan­zai at the cer­tifi­cate-award­ing cer­e­mony in the Fed­eral Ju­di­cial Acad­emy, Islamabad, last Satur­day.

He is ab­so­lutely right, but our rul­ing elite and law­mak­ers have failed to com­pre­hend such strik­ing and painful re­al­i­ties. Had our past and present rulers un­der­stood the prob­lem, they would have re­formed the le­gal and ju­di­cial sec­tor much ear­lier. We now need a strong jus­tice sys­tem for state­build­ing and over­all so­cio-eco­nomic devel­op­ment. —Karachi
